It only takes one feature to make an assault weapon, a consensus acknowledged by the mainstream media. Your stance on assault weapons is in the minority.

You mean the Liberal media with the very clear biased agenda.


...

Oooookay. >_>

And what "one function" dictates whether a gun can be considered an "assault rifle" by the leftist liberals?


There's a rhetorical question. Since when did this become a partisan argument? Most gun owners agree with proposed legislation.

My stance on these weapons is held by everyone who owns one or more of them and can think for themselves


Baloney! The majority of gun owners aren't interested in your "do nothing" approach.



We keep going until fewer criminals have guns.


You are talking to a child that only wants guns because he thinks they are cool, and help him compensate for other things he is lacking down below. The kid has never seen gun violence or known anyone who has. He honestly thinks the discussion is really a conspiracy to unarm citizens so obama can take over the world. I just put him on my ignore list like the rest of america needs to do with these conspiracy screaming clowns that take up too much media time and just stall the grown ups from actually doing something that could help solve the problems. This idiot actually thinks Utah will go to war with the United states army, and he thinks they would actually win if they did.

It's not a rhetorical question, so answer it if you've got the guts.


Baloney! The majority of gun owners aren't interested in your "do nothing" approach.

The majority of gun owners are NOT in favor of Nazi confiscation laws that don't effect crime or criminals at all, and handcuff them as far as future purchases and sales are concerned.

Do you want revolvers, lever actions, and pump guns banned too? When will enough finally be enough for you Feinstein hypocrites? Or will you keep right on going until only the criminals still have guns?

We keep going until fewer criminals have guns.


Criminals, by definition, DO NOT FOLLOW LAWS, so what the F*** makes you think the proposed draconian legislation would actually do anything when it did NOT STOP COLUMBINE FROM HAPPENING BEFORE?????

Maybe going farther back into History is what you need, so how well did Prohibition work? Booze was illegal nationwide, but it could be found EVERYWHERE. It made Al Capone a multimillionaire in 1920's money.

And what about those drug bans that have been in place for more than 70 years? Illegal drugs like weed, heroine, cocaine, crack, etc etc etc, they're also banned nationwide but they're also EVERYWHERE if you've got the money to buy them. Weed and coke made Pablo Escobar a Trillionaire and are keeping the current drug cartels in the multibillionaire status with just one year's worth of sales. The stuff is coming across the borders by the mega-ton, literally.

Mexico home of the biggest cartels, near total civilian gun ban, only the criminals still have guns, more die from guns just in ONE CITY in Mexico than all of the USA every year.

The police have publicly admitted that they can't win the drug war, they never won the booze war either, so what the F*** makes you think banning guns would magically work ? ? ?

^ I would say ARROGANCE !

Socialism has been proven to not work everywhere its tried, yet people think that if its done in the US by US politicians then it will somehow work this time where it has failed everywhere else.

Total gun bans don't work either, but again, if only the US does it, then it will work.

What's that definition for the word "insanity" again..?
Oh yeah....."doing the same thing over & over & over again, but expecting different results."

Why not just legalise murder if that's not stopping everybody?

To start, I am not saying that gun bans are the answer.

But, of course when the argument is ignorant to the the rest of the world, people have this mindset. You place america in the category of an underdeveloped nation when trying to make your argument, but from my understanding we are supposed to be one of the greatest developed nations (well we were until certain political parties started campaigning on a platform to not progress with the rest of the world).

The U.S. is not a uniquely violent society. Our overall rates of violence are similar to Australia, Canada and Western Europe. Where the U.S. stands out, is in the homicide rate.
That's a weapon effect. It's not clear that guns cause violence, but it's absolutely clear that they change the outcome.
Other countries do have homicide rates comparable with the U.S. or worse. But they're not exactly models of public safety. Based on United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime data shows 10,300 homicides by firearms in the U.S. 2009, compared with 8,804 in Mexico and 12,808 in Colombia.

Adjusting for population, the U.S. death rate by firearms -- which includes homicides, suicide and accidents -- was 10.2 per 100,000 people in 2009, The closest developed country was Finland, with a firearms death rate of 4.47 per 100,000 people in 2008, less than half that of the U.S. rate. In Canada, the rate was 2.5 per 100,000 people in 2009. In the United Kingdom, the 2011 rate was 0.25 per 100,000 people.

And gun regulation and control has nothing to do with Socialism. This is what is wrong with the people who get all their "facts" from internet and facebook memes. They use buzzwords they hear, with no knowledge that they are using them ignorantly and inaccurately.
What's that definition for the word "insanity" again..?

That's funny, because every developed country that has put strict gun regulation and gun control into effect has been able to keep homicide rates at much lower levels then America.
Between the mid-1970s and the mid-1990s, Australia had several mass shootings. After a particularly horrible massacre in 1996, a new prime minister, instituted a severe crackdown on gun ownership, and forced would-be gun owners to submit to a rigorous application process, and to document why they would need a gun.
Conditions for gun ownership in Australia are now very strict, and the registration and approval process can take a year or more. Howard’s government also implemented a rigorous “buyback” policy, to enable the government to purchase guns already owned by the public.
The policy worked. While violent crime has not ended in Australia, murders are down, and, even more dramatically, there has not been a single mass shooting since 1996 in which three or more people died (the definition used in many studies of mass shootings). Before the crackdown, there had been 13 such massacres in 18 years.
Yes criminals may still murder, but everyday people may be less likely to snap and walk into schools and kill 20 children.

Hahahahahaha!!! You would think these bozo's would be more concerned about the Middle East and South Korea. Utah is the least of our concerns someone needs to take off his tinfoil hat.

Wasn't BlueStig the same guy who said guns could have prevented the holocaust? He also believed Jesus and Moses used guns to crush the Romans.

Next he's going to tell us Wild West C.O.W Boys of Moo Mesa forced Thomas Jefferson to write the Declaration of Independence. Let him keep spewing garbage he serves as a reminder the type of extreme conspiracy buffs in which the nation should be mindful.

Btw Blue if you want to have a serious conversation I suggest you stop posting in anger making all sorts of bold and lay off the caps. It makes you look like an angry child you're blowing steam because your terms are unacceptable to the Country. I suggest you deal with it.

1. Answer the questions that have been posed to you, you seem to lack the guts to directly answer ANYTHING posed to you, much like all anti-gun zealots who bleat the same tag lines verbatim over and over again.

2. Don't ever tell me how to post, if you can't take specific things being bolded or CAP'D for emphasis to point out things you need to know then you need to grow a spine, it's your own fault if you can't handle those things, not mine.

3. Deal with it? Who the f*** do you think you are, Leeland Yee? Gun owners should all just sit down a shut up while zombie sheeple take away the rights of 310+ Million people? Take a long walk off a short pier if that's your attitude. Telling people to "shut up while we take away your rights" will spark a fight you don't want and can't win.

4. If the second amendment falls, the rest fall with it, so fighting for your first amendment rights hinges on the second amendment staying in place.

Video games have no clear link to increased violence but violent video games do have an effect on the brain chemistry. The same way you can't prove conclusively that smoking causes cancer, you can pretty much make the assumption though.

While I personally think issues of mental health and some better gun restrictions need to be in place, it's idiotic to think a look at video games shouldn't be made as well. Even aside from the potential to effect brain chemistry you have the fact that it makes people lazy, especially children. Kids used to go outside and play, now they sit in their rooms removed from society in their own little virtual world.

Although nothing will be done, which is rightfully so, just a nice long look needs to be made.
#100FredSavage27Posted 2/5/2013 1:40:04 PM
Nothing is going to get done, nothing should be done, so what is taking a look going to accomplish other than wasting time?
